>> brian: it's time to bring in donald trump who is going to be decide not guilty june whether he's running for president. his show has captured the imagination of the entire kilmeade family. we watch every sunday. it was just on last night. welcome back. it's monday. it's time for you. >> good morning. >> steve: great to have you. >> brian: first off, we see a lot of what's going on. the president has a big speech tonight about libya. what would you include if it was your gig? >> i think number one, he's got to talk about who the people are that we're fighting for because i'm hearing more and more that these rebels are aligned with iran, maybe al-qaeda and what's going to happen when we fight -- we've spent over a billion dollars so far in that war for the arab league and that's saudi arabia and a couple of others. we've spent over a billion dollars already on that war and we are in that war whether we like it or not. and the arab league hasn't given us ten cents. they said, we're with you, we're with you.
then all of a sudden, they disappear, as is usual and we fight the war. so we're spending money for saudi arabia, they're not reimbursing us, and who are we fighting for? i hear the rebels. they sound oh, wonderful, wonderful. what's going to happen when it's all over and they turn out to be al-qaeda or maybe iran? >> steve: that would be just awful. >> it's no different than iraq because about two minutes after we leave iraq, iran will take over the oil fields of iraq as sure as you're sitting there. >> gretchen: what do you think about people are saying, now the same situation is happening in syria, so maybe the united states should get involved there. do you think it's a slippery slope and what would you do? >> it is a slippery slope and more and more, you realize we're over there fighting wars to open up these governments and they would have opened up themselves because it's a mess. it's a total mess. that whole part of the world, you just wonder should we be there at all because it is a total mess. >> steve: speaking of mess, i'm sure you were watching over the weekend some of the live images out of london.
anywhere between a quarter of a million and half a million protesters upset that the government, just like our government, is running low on dough and they've got to make big spending cuts: when you see those images where the police have to be called in to keep the people from destroying those shops, what do you think? >> i think very strongly it's going to happen here if obama continues and remains our president because he's not fighting for us. he's allowing other countries to take advantage of us. opec is a joke what they're doing and china, i mean, most of our money is going to opec and china and we don't have money for our people. so i would fully say if this attitude persists, it will absolutely happen in the united states and bigger and better than what you're watching over in london. >> brian: i got to ask you, if we are having budget cuts and social programs will affect everybody's lives are going to be cut out or cut back, is there a way to communicate that to make it acceptable for the
american people who rightly or wrongly are used to getting these checks? >> i think you can communicate it, but it's really not that necessary. we're spending money and we're losing money and jobs to other countries that if this weren't happening, you wouldn't have to make those social cuts. we have people that have absolutely no idea what they're doing running this country! >> gretchen: all right. i want to move on to something that happened last week because once again, i know it's hard to believe -- but there was a lot of talk about donald trump and what happened on "the view." you brought up the idea of the president's birth certificate and the fact that you would love for him to show it just to clear everything up. and then whoopie goldberg said this. >> i think that's the biggest pile of dog mess i've heard in ages! >> a birth certificate he doesn't want to show.
>> let him show. >> any white president asked to be shown the birth certificate... . >> let him show his birth certificate. >> gretchen: mr. trump, does it have anything to do with race? >> absolutely not. and i like whoopie, i've always had a good relationship with her. she asked know do a movie for her. knives a movie. but frankly, it's insulting that she brings that up. what does that have to do with race? when she said it, i said, what are we talking about? they asked john mccain for his birth certificate. they've asked others for their birth certificate. they asked bush for his, by the way. i just found out over the weekend. and they would ask me for my birth certificate and by the way, it's sitting on the top of my desk. they give you a certificate of live birth, which anybody can get, just walk into the hospital and you get a certificate of live birth. it's not even signed by people. now, this guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn't.
and i didn't think this was such a big deal, but i will tell you, it's turning out to be a very big deal because people now are calling me from all over saying, please don't give up in this issue. if you weren't born in this country, you can not be president. >> gretchen: do you think he was born in this country? >> i am really concerned. and i will tell you, when this all started a week ago, i assumed, hey, look, you have no doctors that remember. you have no nurses of the president of the united states that remember. that ad was placed in the houston paper, that was placed in the paper days after he was born. so he could have come into the country and did it for social reasons they put it in. they did it for whatever reason. there are a lot of reasons you could have put an ad in. but he could have been born outside of this country. why can't he produce a birth certificate and by the way, there is one story that his family doesn't even know what hospital he was born in! >> steve: i've heard that. before you go, what about the main stream media counts of this
dust up over the last week, where they're trying to paint you as the mayor of crazy town for bringing this up? >> it's amazing. i start off every time i talk about the birthers, i start off by saying, and it's very interesting, i was a great student at the best college in the country. you know? i want to let people know. i'm a senator guy. because what they do to the birthers and i don't even like the term. i think it's unfair. these are people that want to see a birth certificate. they want to know that the president was born here! >> gretchen: why would you go down this path, donald? a lot of people were asking that last week as well. why would you decide to do this if, in fact, you decide to run for president? >> because if you're not born in the united states, you can not be president. there is a real question. and if this birth certificate exists, you know what i get a kick out of? the governor of hawaii says, i remember when he was born 50 years ago. i doubt it. i think this guy should be investigated. i doubt it. he remember when is obama was born? give me a break!
he's just trying to do something for his party. the fact is, if you're not born in the united states, you can not be president. he is having a hard time -- he spent millions of dollars trying to get away from this issue, millions of dollars in legal fees trying to get away from this issue. i'll tell you what, i brought it up just routinely and all of a sudden, a lot of facts are emerging and i'm starting to wonder myself whether or not he was born in this country. >> brian: that's not going away in your mind. donald, "celebrity apprentice" going well. thank you for joining us. we look forward to this every monday. >> thank you very much. >> brian: breaking news on
